They praised the bravery, morale and sacrifices of Army, Police and Pakistan Rangers (Sindh) in the line of duty.

The CM stated that State acknowledged and saluted innumerable sacrifices rendered by law enforcement agencies (LEAs) and nation’s unbreakable resolve against terrorism.

The COAS emphasised, “Terrorists have no religious or ideological moorings, rather only misguided conception forced through coercion or inducement.”

He continued, “No nation can overcome such challenges with ‘kinetic actions’ only. It needs mutual trust, will of the people and synergy between all stakeholders.”

“Pakistanis have always rejected and defeated terrorism and extremism in all its manifestations. Together we shall prevail upon this menace for a shared prosperous future,” the COAS concluded.

Earlier on arrival, the COAS was received by Commander Karachi Corps Lieutenant General Babar Iftikhar.
